Poems -> Reflection :  Can't Not
Tags: Loss   attachment   abandonment   Caring   not   can't  
 
I still remember what you said
that you couldn't let people get too close
let them get inside
your mind
and I didn't want to any more
because
it hurts so much
too much
to care
but if I meet new people
now
I end up caring
anyway
and then one day
maybe
they can hurt me
really hurt me
is that what they mean
by phrases like
you leave yourself open
I suppose so
but I tried
to slam my heart and mind
shut
and failed
because I still care
and I still
can't not
